Mindset is a big topic in the business world. No high achiever who has reached their ultimate success owns a wrong or silly mindset. Overall, your mindset determines how successful you will be.
Almost all of us fallen victim to a negative mindset or two during our lives. To be successful, we need to shift our mindset to the positive zone.
Change Jealousy to Admiration
People have an instinct to dislike those who have what we want but cannot have and those who are more successful than they are. If this is your situation, then it can be easy to become jealous and lose your focus.
One undeniable success principle you should keep in mind is that follow and look up to those who has the kind of success you are dreaming of. How can be like them if your are jealous of their growth. So, the first mindset shift you need to make is to change your jealousy into admiration.
Once you manage to do this, you can start to emulate their journey. This means that you stand higher chance of achieving your own success. Who knows if you can also find a business mentor because of such a mindset shift ?
Change Procrastination to Achievement
The common scene we usually witness in the business world is people hesitate to do what they want to do. And most of us seem to be stuck in the trap of procrastination because either we are not confident of ourselves or we wait for the perfect to happen. Then we end up paying for it later with a stress-induced haze of busyness.
If you are procrastinating, do not be to much worried. To avoid procrastination, turn things around and start thinking with an achievement mindset. Ask yourself, “What task of the day is the most dreadful or the most overwhelming?” and do that task first. Once you can fulfill such task, everything else will seem much simpler. You will start your day with an achievement instead of procrastination.
Shift from a Fixed Mindset to a Growth Mindset
Do you have a fixed mindset or a growth mindset? A fixed mindset is when you believe that talent is born, it is fixed and it cannot be changed. On the contrary, a growth mindset is when you believe that what you have now does not define you, that your talents, skills, and abilities is not fixed and that you can be better if you put in the effort.
People have developed a growth mindset have a much better chance to succeed because they don’t believe that failure is the end. Rather, they view failure as an opportunity to learn and try again. Those with a fixed mindset won’t try again but will blame the failure for a lack of skill that can’t be changed instead.
Without any further explanation of these two mindsets, you probably understand that there is no way you can succeed if you are a fixed-mindset entrepreneur. If the flame of massive success is still burning inside of you, start developing a growth mindset.
Mindset Shifts Lead to Success
Your current mindset is the mindset which has been with you so many years and cannot be changed into a brand new one in just one day. But as long as you are aware of this change and try to change your mindset everyday, from jealousy to admiration, procrastination to achievement, and from a fixed mindset to a growth mindset, your chance of success goes way up. Why not start trying it now?
